*Thank you for helping us reach our 5k team goal! We are so grateful!*

On June 4, starting around 4am, we are hiking 25 miles at Jiminy Peak in the beautiful berkshires! Why? Because we won't stop until there are treatment options for 100% of people living with cystic fibrosis (CF). We are a brother/sister team, and our team is called "Breathe Innovation" as a nod to the CF awareness campaign created by Translate Bio. Maura was formerly part of the TBio team and is so grateful to have had the opportunity to get to know the CF community through her years at TBio. You inspire us and you are the reason we are hiking 25 miles #UntilItsDone!

Join our team or donate here to help us get one step closer to a cure for CF. With supporters like you by our side, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation continues to lead the way in the fight against CF, fueling extraordinary medical and scientific progress. The life expectancy of someone born with CF has doubled in the last 30 years. Despite this progress, many people with CF do not benefit from existing therapies either because their disease is too advanced or because their specific genetic mutations will not respond. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers who struggle every day in the face of this devasting disease.

We hike for them. Thank you for your donation and support! #BreatheInnovation
